Geese shot at night at Pagham

“You can only shoot Brent Geese after applying for a licence from Natural England and having proved there is serious damage to crops that cannot be prevented, and so we are sure such a licence would not be granted for this area which has been uncultivated lately.”

The police were alerted to reports dangerous geese shootings on two nights. The warden at Pagham Harbour has also been informed.

Sussex Police has been approached for comment.
